International Conference on Ethnic and Religious Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding, Oct 30-Nov 1, 2018, New York City. Deadline: June 29, 2018.
Sponsored by Center for Ethnic, Racial & Religious Understanding (CERRU) at Queens College, City University of New York. The theme will be Traditional Systems of Conflict Resolution. By organizing and hosting an international conference on the traditional systems of conflict resolution, we hope to not only begin a pluri-disciplinary, policy, and legal discussion on the traditional systems of conflict resolution, but most importantly, this international conference will serve as an international forum where researchers, scholars, policy makers and practitioners will have an opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from the traditional rulers from various countries around the world. In turn, the traditional rulers will discover emerging research and best practices presented by scholars and practitioners at the conference. The outcome of the exchange, inquiry and discussion will inform the international community on the roles and importance of the traditional systems of conflict resolution in our contemporary world.
